The trio Chapel Productions (Oliver Larking, Dan Olsson and Adrian Åsling Sellius) creates mysterious electroacoustic atmospheres colored by the broad nuances of improvisation. Blendung is a world of dream logic where noisy field recordings meet sounds reminiscent of musique concrète and free jazz. This makes for an abstract and unique listening experience. And somewhere deep in the shadows a deformed pop song is lurking.

Blendung was improvised in the studio, only a minimal amount of overdubs were made. The sounds on the album derive to a large extent from saxophone, clarinets, synthesizers, organ and, as mentioned above, field recordings.
